Bird Song and Terrapin Station were played in the same show a total of 51 times - all of them in the post-Keith and Donna era as Bird song took a seven year hiatus in the fall of 1973 and didn't return until the 1980 acoustic shows. What a great thing that it did.
Two of my favorites.

This started well.
It kinda got away from them. Excellent first set, flat second with Garcia sounding like he wants to go home.

Wharf Rat again smokes it
Post-drums is high-energy. Just listen to Wharf Rat, both lyrically and with the band's energy in the music. A+

The second time the boys graced the stage at the Philly Civic Center. It was an unusual stop for the band..home being the Spectrum. The Civic Center was located on the campus of the U of Penn and was a lot older and layed out different then the Spectrum.It has since been tore down along with most of the venues in Philly.A well played show from start to finish..Bird Song and the China>Rider stick out in my memory of this night.I also remember the ceiling melting..LOL..Philly is home! Forever Grateful>Forever Dead..Give it a whirl!!!!!!!

.to this example of the band all playing and singing well together and, in my opinion, the music often does play the band, as it does so well on this night.

Consistently excellent show
Post drums has been wearing on me lately and sometimes it seems the band wanted to run backstage. The songs can sometimes leave me wanting, but not this one. An excellent show and energized post drums.
Jerrys voice was much stronger tonight than the more famous next night. The entire show is well played with special notes to birdsong, music, and the wharf rat which is longer than average.
Btw there is a superb audience of this show with the deepest phil.
